Hi,

About a year ago I bought a second hand server. A HP DL380 G4, it had a hard life admittedly but ran well and did what I needed.
The issue I have is that it now does not power on. It got 2 PSUs which both whir when plugged into the walls. But that's where the power stops. It does not light up anything on the motherboard, but does bring a critical light error on the front of the unit (i checked through the manual). I don't need it to run for another year, just 10 minutes to pull the data off.
Firstly, would there be any impact on the RAID controller if I changed the motherboard and kept the hard drives?
Secondly is there anything I can do with SCSI drives to pull data off? I know there is for SATA and IDE drives.

Thanks.

I had originally trawled through their copious amounts of PDF guides but the one you linked I did not come across.
Thanks for the assistance, I will have another bash at a diagnosis tomorrow.
